The idea was to keep design simple and clean-looking. The very early models did come enhanced with air conditioning and a good sound system. All in all, it was a durable sports car equipped with necessities.
The carís light weight was a huge advantage when considering engine options. Just over 2,000 pounds, Mazda Miata did not need a big engine to produce speed and excitement of a large sports car. At first, Miata included a 1.6 liter, 116 horsepower engine and it revved from 0 to 60 mph in less than nine seconds. Obviously, by todayís standards this doesnít seem all that incredible, but at time it was a notable achievement that guaranteed a good time.
Indeed, popularity of Mazda Miata extends across globe. This is evidenced by an increasing number of Mazda Miata clubs in places like Sweden, England, and New Zealand. Come see what all fuss is about for yourself.

While these changes were being implemented, Mercury continued producing its stock car version. By 1964 race version was equipped with a 410 horsepower engine. No doubt, Marauder was a heavy-duty car. Approximately 4,500 pounds, this Mercury promised a comfortable and solid ride. The secure feeling of this Mercury proved to be one of its most attractive features.
Many consider two-door hardtop most appealing design of all Mercury Marauders. With a rear overhang, trunk space is unmatched. And rear tailfins, three taillights and a streamlined bumper made for a great presentation.
